Over a year and a half ago, Harry Potter franchise director David Yates was slated to reteam with star Emma Watson in an adaptation of writer Emma Forrest's memoir, Your Voice in My Head. However, just this last March, co-star Stanley Tucci said that Watson would be replaced by Emily Blunt. Then a couple months later, director David Yates left the project, and it was unclear where that left the production. Now a press release has announced that Watson is still attached to star, but this time Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall, Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes) will be sitting in the director's chair. More below!
Saving Mr. Banks and Jane Eyre producer Alison Owen is behind the film which has a script adapted by Forrest herself that made the Black List a little while back. Now production is slated to begin in New York in November. Watson will play a young bipolar English woman living in New York and the heroic, selfless psychiatrist who saves her life while fighting for his own. However, at this point it's not clear if Tucci will still have a role in the film. Either way, we're glad to see that Watson is taking a lead role like this that may result in some awards attention if all goes well.
